How to Remove Stickers from Car Glass Without Damage?
Often, we have parking permits and other types of stickers on the car front glass. Once these stickers are no longer valid, they must be removed to prevent the windshield from having a very cluttered look. Having said that, it’s not just a simple matter of peeling off the stickers and calling it a day. These stickers are very sticky and hard to get rid off, and when peeled incorrectly or hastily, they can leave behind little stuck pieces of paper that can hamper your vision.
So, what should you do if the validity of the stickers has passed, and you need to get rid of them? The answer is simple - you can follow any of the steps given below to remove these pesky stickers on your car front glass.
How to remove stickers from the car glass?
Here are a few quick and simple ways to remove the car front glass sticker:
- Use soap and water!
- Use a glass window cleaner!
- Use alcohol!
- Use baking soda mix!
- Use an ice pack!
- Use nail polish remover!
One of the easiest ways to get rid of the car front glass sticker is by using soap and water. To start with, all you need to do is peel the corners of the stickers. This will make sure that the soap and water can be absorbed by the sticky end and make the adhesive weaker. Then, all you need to do is mix a little bit of mild soap and water in a bowl or mug. Then, dip a clean rag into the mixture and rub it softly over the car front glass sticker.
If you have a clean spray bottle, you can also put the mixture into the same and spritz it right onto the car front glass sticker. This will help dissolve the adhesive elements of the stickers and then will make it easier for you to clean the glass.
If you have a glass window cleaner lying around in your home then you are in luck! This is because a glass window cleaner can be used easily to clean the car front glass sticker. You can use a silicone scraper to gently peel the sticker while applying the cleaner. You can continue to scrap and peel (and apply the window cleaner) until the entire sticker is removed.
No, don’t grab that old bottle you’ve been saving for a special day! What you need is denatured alcohol or rubbing alcohol. It is a great solution as it not only dissolves the adhesives in the sticker (thereby making it less sticky), but also helps dissolve the paper so that it can be removed without leaving behind any tiny pieces.
Rub the denatured alcohol onto the sticker. Let it sit for a while so that it can be absorbed by the entire sticker properly. You’ll notice that after a while, the sticker naturally becomes wrinkly and soft. You can easily scrape it off using a plastic scale. Be sure to scrape it gently so that you don’t leave any scratches.
Love to bake? Then you’ll definitely have some baking soda in your kitchen. Grab it and use it to get rid of that pesky car front glass sticker. It can also be used to remove any decal left behind by an auto dealer. The best part is that making this mixture is very simple!
All you need to do is get some baking soda and mix it with cooking oil. Mix it properly until it looks homogenous. Use a clean rag to dab it on the sticker or decal. After the sticker is fully soaked, it will get wrinkly on its own and will be very easy to peel off.
You can use any card (like a debit card) to scrape it off.
Don’t have the time to find different liquids? All you need to do is grab an ice pack. Place the ice pack onto the sticker and hold it there for a while. This will help by weakening the bond between the glass and the adhesive in the sticker or the decal. After a while, you will be able to peel off the sticker with the help of a blade or a plastic scale.
Nail polish remover is an item that’s present in almost everyone’s home. It’s easy to get your hands on, and can be used to get rid of the sticker on the windshield without much effort. Sprinkle some nail polish remover on a dry paper towel until it is fairly wet. You can then rub the sticker with the towel to weaken the adhesive and also disintegrate the paper of the sticker.
Once it has weakened enough, all you need to do is scrape it off with any strong item. Make sure that you’re scraping it at a 45-degree angle so that it can be removed without any damage.
